CIDER DOUGHNUT ROAD TRIP
By Heather Phelps-Lipton
Halloween gets all the attention, but in New York State, it’s the month for cider doughnuts.
Cakey and crunchy-edged (but surprisingly light), they can be found at orchards and farm stands throughout the state and are best eaten warm.
I spent a cinnamon-scented weekend "conducting research" on four of the Empire State's best, two in the capital region + two in the Hudson Valley.
